Knitted Owl Hat

I’ve been on a hat knitting binge this winter.

I had some of my hand dyed berry yarn, that need to become a hat!


One skein dark with purples it in, the other blues.

I found this hat through Ravelry, a free download. free Owl Hat pattern by Ruthie Knits.


Just starting here and I’m pleased with how the colors are flecked through out.


This pattern works up very quickly, perfect for a fast gift and great for just about anyone.


If you look around on Ravelry you can see the many different versions. Some have small beads in the eye area. I thought I was going to add eyes, but when I couldn’t decide what color or size. I just opted out.

I especially like the version by sekini, she made the owls in a different color, it changed the whole look of the hat!  I would definitely make this pattern again, and try it her way.

May your knitting needles fly as fast as dragonflies….

  1. That's so funny...I was knitting with a friend a couple of weeks ago and we both agreed that the Celtic knots she was doing looked kind of like owls! I have to find this pattern. I love the yarn color. Did you dye it?

  2. That's adorable! Great job and a lovely yarn choice.
